Baseball America’s annual list of Top 10 Yankees prospects was revealed last month, but now the full list and scouting reports are online at the magazine’s website. John Manuel, who wrote the Yankees list, is hosting a chat all about the team’s farm system beginning at 2 p.m. ET. Go check it out for another perspective on the organizational depth.

Outside of the Top 10 prospects, low-level reliever Mark Montgomery is touted as having the system’s best slider, Nik Turley was chosen for the best control, Ramon Flores for the best strike zone discipline and Cito Culver was picked as the organization’s best defensive infielder with the best infield arm.
